I just hope this goes up on the locker room bulletin board in the Pepsi Center.

The best part was this from Chad Ford:

This summer Anthony was on the trading block for a short time and his future with the team still seems very much up in the air.

What a crock of ****. Melo was never "on the block". The closest thing that was said by anybody in the Nuggets organization to such a thing was the very generalized statement attributed by Mark Kiszla in the Post (http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_9199420) to "a source familiar with the team" that nobody was "absolutely untouchable". So let's just jump from there right to "Melo was on the block". Uh, solid. Uh-huh. Especially when the only publicly confirmed offer for Melo came from the Pistons, and was roundly rejected by Denver's FO. And subsequently, Melo had a meeting with Rex Chapman, who gave him a verbal guarantee that he would not be traded.

So, memo to Ford: If you want to base an argument on a lie (or more generously, a mistaken assumption) for its foundation, it's not going to stand up to scrutiny.

i hope we dominate everyone and prove them wrong, they are so dumb with how they "guess" if you even want to call it that, at how good teams will be. ya i think we will do better than last year, but you cant see that until they actually play. we definately have more pieces that we need and a way better down low person (NENE). There is no way we got worse.
